Reversible Sewing Hack To Take In Clothes At The Waist
choose an item in your closet with a waist that you would like to take in
1
Pinch the waist in the back to your desired size. Measure the length of the fabric you pinched.(~1.5 inches here)
2
Measure the length from the back belt loop. Mark that spot on each side with a safety pin.
3
I highly suggest using extra strong thread if you do this with denim!
Sew a ladder stitch in a V shape in line with the center belt loop and out toward the safety pin.
4
Pull thread taut to cinch in the waist.
5
Repeat on the other side of the belt loop.
